Create proposals that illustrate different design concepts.
Conceptual designs allow you to test one or more ideas for the development of a given area in your model. Proposals allow you to prepare design concepts which you can present for review to planning commissions, city councils, or community leaders.
In each proposal, you can use the tools to draw proposed elements over an existing model. With the tools, you can add objects like buildings, roads, bodies of water, or regions devoted to trees and landscape.
For added realism, import data into your proposals. You can import coverage files or LandXML data to show differences in terrain, indicate transportation lines by means of .SHP files, and leverage 3D models built in other applications. For example, import Autodesk Revit or 3ds Max models.
Infrastructure Modeler also offers many tools for managing proposals. When multiple proposals are present, you have the ability to switch between them to compare concepts. If necessary, you can toggle the proposal display between 2D and 3D viewing modes.
